Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area is a hunting & fishing wildlife area administered by the Indiana Department of Natural Resource's Division of Fish & Wildlife. The Division of Fish & Wildlife is dedicated to providing a quality hunting & fishing area while maintaining 8,142 acres of wetland, upland and woodland game habitat.

The property's suitable habitat also provides an ideal stopover for migratory birds, such as the more than 10,000 sandhill cranes that stop during fall migration.

The office for this property is located Medaryville, in northwestern Indiana. The property itself spans three counties. The majority of the land is in both northwestern Pulaski County & northeastern Jasper County, with a small area of land jutting into southwestern Starke County. The widely used Jasper-Pulaski Shooting Range, is physically in unincorporated Wheatfield, in Jasper County.

The time zone line, runs along the Jasper-Pulaski County lines, splitting the property nearly in half by both the Jasper-Pulaski County line/s and the time zone line. The western half of the property, in Jasper County, utilizes Central Time.. The Eastern half of the property is in Pulaski County on the Eastern Time Zone.

The shooting range & archery range, are both open to the public. While there are no fees for hunting, fishing, use of the shooting or archery ranges, or just stopping by to catch a glimpse of the sandhill cranes, all property users are required to sign in prior to using the property. The self-service sign-in area is open 24/7.

In addition to state fish and wildlife laws, this property is governed by posted regulations affecting the public use of lands and facilities owned, leased or licensed by the Department of Natural Resources.
